Default My brand new fermentation chamber

Picked up the chest freezer on the local classifieds, assembled the dual stage temp controler box by reading other threads right here, and bought a reptile rock at PetSmart for 15 bucks. It will hold 3 buckets comfortably, but I only have 2 at the moment. If you see Santa, tell him I need another bucket...

It took a couple hours to get it from 50 to 65, but it can hold 65 no problem as long as I don't leave the door open for more than a few minutes at a time...

Looks good. A small fan would help you reach desired temps quickly.
